So, I just purchased a 07 kawasaki ninja 250r and had it tuned up today (it was sitting for about a year) and it only has 500km on it. Anyway!
Its rather cold here. Sitting around 2 degrees.
My bike starts like a beauty! No problem whatsoever.. HOWEVER, as soon as I release the choke it shuts off.
I've tried riding it for a bit so it warms up and then closing the choke and it STILL shuts off. I've tried adjusting my idle as well. This bike is mint... and it just got tuned up (today) and was running great when it left the shop.
It runs amazingly! as long as the choke is fully applied. and I know it's not good to ride with the choke applied.
Any tips boys?! Help please!!

They cleaned the carbs and basically checked the bike over. Air, fluids, mechanical, electrical. They also safetied it. I figured it out. This bike has a super low idle and doesn't like the cold. I had to let it warm up for about 8-10 minutes before releasing the choke. I also had to adjust my idle. Its new and I'm used to fuel injected. Darn Manitoba weather. Thank you though!
